Fresh from winning the 2020 Tamworth Songwriters Association Talent Quest, Cass Hopetoun has released her debut single Shots. The track was co-written with Blake Dantier and produced by Matt Fell, who recently took home a Golden Guitar for producing the Alt-country Album of the Year, at Love Hz Studios in Sydney.
“Shots is a song about coming of age,” explains Cass. “I was realising that all my friends were in a hurry to grow up. They’re all in their mid-20s and getting full-time jobs, and sometimes it seems like they’re allergic to having fun. One day I complained that nobody wants to do shots anymore, and that became the start of the song.”
